do you have a mega-cookie site to add to this thread? or even a mini-cookie site ;-)
Here are some cookies I have been making -

http://jenyu.net/blog/2007/12/20/ging... Ginger Lemon Cookies
http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1713,... Chocolate Macaroons
http://ayankeeinasouthernkitchen.com/... French Butter Cookies - with these I added crushed lavender flowers for a variation. Another variation was crushed saffron & scraped vanilla bean or coconut. It is a good basic butter cookie recipe and you can easily add variations.
thank you. i'd like to try the chocolate covered cherry cookies: http://www.yankeemagazine.com/recipes...
or the cobble house pecan cookies: http://www.yankeemagazine.com/recipes...
or the coconut island cookies: http://www.yankeemagazine.com/recipes...

Most of my faves you already have listed...there is a local cookbook author & blogger who's Chocolava cookies I make several times a year (sometimes several times a month) - they're moist, great chocolate flavor and lowfat (which is a bonus particularly around the Holidays). I make a lot of her cookies from "One Smart Cookie" and every last one has been a hit - people are always surprised they're lowfat. There are quite a few other recipes of hers on her blog - most recently her biscotti (click cookies & bars on the left column) :) http://dinnerwithjulie.com/2008/08/26...
I'm a year late, but just wanted to say that I tried these cookies and they were amazing! my kids loved them and they were so easy--can whip them up fast.
I played with them a little--rolled in reg sugar instead of powdered because i hate powdered sugar on cookies, and used less baking powder as i like a flat cookie.
But seriously, if you have kids, these will be a big hit. not suble or sophisitcated, but very good. closest i've ever come to archway dutch cocoa cookies, a fave of mine growing up.
